We’re finally here, J. My most dreaded of letters for this years challenge. Honestly; I wrote a list and couldn’t come up with anything for J! Someone suggested jewellery; but I don’t do much in the way of making jewellery (though I’ve had a go here and there)! Though I do use jewels, gems, glitter, beads and sparkle a lot in crafting!
This year my A-Z Challenge theme is: The Craft Room and Beyond – A Retrospective. A look back at previous content and basically a chance to share and revisit some things from the archive. As I have said before; if you see something that piques your interest that I don’t link to; certainly seek out the search bar, or get in touch!

I was having a think this week about Happy Mail; and given the time of year, and the current situation here in the UK; it made me think of what Valentines gifts (or “galentines” etc etc) you could send in the post.
So I thought I’d do a little post sharing some ideas, great if you wanted to step away from the simple flowers and chocolates, or even if you were just looking for ideas to send something nice to a special friend!
And as a bonus I’m also sharing a super cute and easy craft idea anyone can do, for almost any occasion!

Yes, you read it here a week ago, the knitting was complete, so what’s happening now?!! What’s with the Very Berry Knitting – Extra?!
When I had finished knitting before, I still had some yarn left over, and of course that called for making something else…

SO still in lockdown, and still working on Love Tree, so I thought I’d share a bit about our rainy week, and of course a cross-stitch update too!
What does a rainy week mean for us? Well, lots of movie watching, a bit of reading, finally actually finishing tidying the craft room, and of course cross-stitching!!

Yes, you read it here first, very berry knitting complete! I’ve actually managed to finish something I started! I know, I’m impressed too!
Though I will say; I have since made something else; which I’ll be sharing next week; to use up the remaining yarn (It STILL didn’t!) but I’m at least quite proud that I’ve used a fair bit of it!

I’m feeling oddly motivated at the moment; and I thought I’d use that motivation for a little more craft time! I’ve always got something on the go, and I thought I’d try and get back on the needles; with some very berry knitting!
So here goes with another crafty project at the beginning of the year! Though I’m thinking small and easy to accomplish this time, because I always have a habit of starting things but not finishing them!

It’s about time for some Christmas crafting isn’t it! I thought I’d start this year with some easy yarn crafts you can do at home; to add to your decorating!
I have quite a few handmade decorations at this point; but I can’t help myself at this time of year. Here are some easy crafty ideas, for you to try!

I wanted to do something a little different this month, and share some fab indie biz. It’s fairly officially Christmas shopping season, and it’s a great opportunity to support small business; shop indie; and spread a little love to those that may be struggling; as there are no craft fairs or the like this year!
So here are a range of some of the handmade products from some of my friends online! If you have a small business, get in touch and I’ll happily add you to the list! Please don’t link spam; if you have a gift guide similar to this one, do tell everyone about it in the comments below!

So we’re at the end of February! And I am seriously hoping that along with a new month, the weather starts to improve soon, because I am so bored of wind and rain!
This week has been quite good fun though…

Another project brought out of hibernation this week. I’ve been saying I’ll finish this for too long; but this fun bright jumper is going to be SO worth it! I’m really inspired to get this one done!
To banish this wintery grey and gloom, I’m making a point at the moment, to work on a bit of colourful fun!
